This fight will be made. It is smart business-wise for the Mayweather camp for 2 reasons.

1. Bradley has a win over Pacquiao(no matter what you think you saw). If Maywether beats Bradley(which is almost a guarantee), then he doesnt have to fight Pacquiao because he beat the guy who beat him. OR, he can go into negotiations for a Pacquiao fight with a larger chunk of the purse. What was 55 - 45 will easilit become 65 - 35 or worse.

2. Bradley is at least on paper a legit fight, so all the Sergio Martinez vs Mayweather talk goes away. Mayweather will kill 2 birds with one stone. He can avoid the threat that Martinez poses and save face because his fans will argue that Bradley was a better opponent anyway.

I don't see how this fight is the least bit practical for Floyd Mayweather. Bradley is a horrible draw, and since Floyd fights for the "money" it wouldn't make sense that he would even consider this, heck Arum and Pacquiao didn't. The only reason Manny isn't facing Bradley again is simple economics and nothing more. Pacquiao would rather run the risk of fans not being as enthusiastic for another moronic clash with Marquez, with the same dim witted buildup, than face Bradley again.

If Arum would've considered putting Pacquiao in with Bradley again, in my humble opinion, that would be equivalent to promotional malpractice. I'm sure Bradley's a great guy, but as a commodity he's about as valuable as a shit sandwich.

That's my take.......
